Dental Insurance Plans: What’s Covered, What’s Not

If you have dental benefits, do you know what’s in the fine print and what type of plan is best for you?

Many Americans — 77% — have dental benefits, the National Association of Dental Plans says. Most people have private coverage, usually from an employer or group program. Large employers are more likely to offer dental benefits than small employers and high wage workers are more likely to receive them than low wage workers. Medicare doesn’t cover dental care, and most state Medicaid programs cover dental care only for children.

To make the most of your benefits, you need to know these things.

Insurance or Benefits?

When shopping for insurance, you may see the term dental benefits, which is different from insurance.

An insurance plan is meant to absorb risk — the risk that you’ll need to have a tooth pulled, for instance, or to get a root canal

Dallas Gym – Recess Fitness Club

Taylor Metzger, Co-founder

      LinkedIn

I started working out at the age of 15 knowing nothing about fitness; my motivator was getting bullied. With time, I learned more and more and decided to get my personal training certification when I was 20. I started out as a trainer at 24-Hour Fitness and have worked in various gyms since.  17 years later through many failures, business and personal, I finally have my own gym, Recess Fitness Club – In the old 24hr Fitness building. I wouldn’t be who I am today without the trainers I’ve worked with and the business mentors that have believed & taken a chance on me. Personal training & fitness is extremely fulfilling to me. I can always improve and learn more – that’s not just aesthetic. One of the best feelings for me is knowing I have the ability to help change others lives too. The self confidence

Leukemia: Diagnosis, Tests, Treatment, Medication

A stem cell transplant has three stages: induction, conditioning, and transplantation. First, the individual’s white blood cell count is brought under control by chemotherapy. Then a single dose of chemotherapy may be given followed by a conditioning regimen of high dose chemotherapy. This will destroy the individual’s bone marrow and any residual leukemia cells that may be present. Then the donor cells will be infused.

Until the donor marrow cells start producing new blood, the individual is left with virtually no blood cells — white cells, red cells, or platelets. This makes death by infection or bleeding a strong possibility. Once the donor stem cells grow sufficiently into the marrow, usually in two to six weeks, long-term remission becomes a strong possibility. In addition to chemotherapy, the person will receive medication to prevent and treat graft versus host disease. With this disease, donor cells attack the person’s normal

Ivermectin | COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines





Last Updated: February 11, 2021

Ivermectin is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved antiparasitic drug that is used to treat several neglected tropical diseases, including onchocerciasis, helminthiases, and scabies.1 It is also being evaluated for its potential to reduce the rate of malaria transmission by killing mosquitoes that feed on treated humans and livestock.2 For these indications, ivermectin has been widely used and is generally well tolerated.1,3 Ivermectin is not approved by the FDA for the treatment of any viral infection.

Proposed Mechanism of Action and Rationale for Use in Patients With COVID-19

Reports from in vitro studies suggest that ivermectin acts by inhibiting the host importin alpha/beta-1 nuclear transport proteins, which are part of a key intracellular transport process that viruses hijack to enhance infection by suppressing the host’s antiviral response.4,5 In addition, ivermectin docking may interfere with

Keratin Hair Treatment Pros and Cons

A keratin treatment, sometimes called a Brazilian blowout or Brazilian keratin treatment, is a chemical procedure usually done in a salon that can make hair look straighter for as long as 6 months. It adds intense glossy shine to hair and can reduce frizz.

The process involves getting your hair washed, then having a stylist brush the treatment onto wet hair where it will sit for about 30 minutes.

Some hair stylists prefer to blow dry the hair first and apply the treatment to dry hair. They’ll then flat iron the hair in small sections to seal in the treatment.

The whole process can take several hours — so bring a book or something quiet to do!

If you’re not sure if keratin treatment is right for you, weigh the pros and cons below.

The body naturally makes the protein keratin — it’s what hair and nails are made up

Bronchitis: Diagnosis, Treatment, Antibiotics

If you recently had a cold that turned into a nagging cough, you might have acute bronchitis. (In medical terms, “acute” means conditions that come on quickly and last a short time).

Bronchitis happens when your bronchial tubes, which carry oxygen from your windpipe to your lungs, become inflamed. The lining of the tubes makes mucus, which makes your cough worse.

The condition can also cause wheezing and make it hard to catch your breath.

To know for sure whether your recent illness is acute bronchitis and not an allergy or other problem, you should see your doctor.

While many cases go away on their own, others require treatment. Learn more about how doctors diagnose and treat bronchitis:

How Do I Know Whether it’s Acute or Chronic?

First, it’s important to figure out a time line.

Treatment for Pancreatitis | NIDDK

How do health care professionals treat pancreatitis?

Treatment for acute or chronic pancreatitis may include

  • pain medicine, and antibiotics by mouth or through an IV if you have an infection in your pancreas
  • a low-fat diet, or nutrition by feeding tube or IV if you can’t eat

Your doctor may send you to a gastroenterologist or surgeon for one of the following treatments, depending on the type of pancreatitis that you have.

Acute pancreatitis

Mild acute pancreatitis usually goes away in a few days with rest and treatment. If your pancreatitis is more severe, your treatment may also include:

Surgery. Your doctor may recommend surgery to remove the gallbladder, called cholecystectomy, if gallstones cause your pancreatitis. Having surgery within a few days after you are admitted to the hospital lowers the
